"At his comm= and your weapon struck me evilly. As I let the divine powers go out of my hand, these divine powers returned to the abzu= . As I let the di= vine plan go out of my hand, this divine plan returned to the abzu. This tablet of destinies returned to= the abzu. I was stripped of the divine powers."

Ninurta was stunned at t= hese words of the Anzud chick. Ninmena gave out a wail: "And what about me? These divine powers have not fallen into my hand. I shall not exercise their authority. I shall not live like him in the shrine= , in the abzu."

Father Enki in the abzu knew what had been said.

The Anzud chick took the hero Ninurta by his hand and = drew near with him to Enki's= place, the abzu. The Anzud chick returned Uta-ulu to the abzu. The lord was delighted with the hero, Father Enki was delighted wi= th the hero Ninurta.

Lord Nudimmud honoured him duly: "Hero, no god among your brother gods could have acted so. As for the bird which your mighty weapon captured, from now to eternity you wi= ll keep your foot placed on its neck. May the great gods give your heroic stre= ngth its due. May your father Enlil do whatever you command. May Ninmena not fashion your equal. May no one be as revered as you and no god extend an upraised hand before you. Monthly may your house regularly rec= eive tributes in the shrine, in the abzu= . May An proclaim your na= me in the seat of honour."<= /p>

The hero secretly= was not happy with these promises. Where he stood, he darkened and yellowed lik= e a flood-storm. He contemplated great deeds and inwardly he was rebellious. He uttered a word which has no ……. The hero Ninurta set his sights on the whole world. He told no one and inwardly did not …….<= /p>

The great lord Enki intuitively gras= ped the substance of the plan. In the shrine, in the abzu= he stirred up a = dark flood-storm.

By the house the minister Isimud opposed <= span class=3DSpellE>Ninurta. The hero Ninurta refused to come = out and raised his hand against the minister Isimud.

Against Ninurta, Enki fashioned a turt= le from the clay of the abzu. Against him he stationed the turtle = at an opening, at the gate of the abzu. Enki talked to him ne= ar the place of the ambush and brought him to the place where the turtle was. = The turtle was able to grab Ninurta's tendon from behi= nd. The hero Ninurta managed to turn = back its feet. Enki, as if perplexed, said, "What is this!" He had the turtle scrape the ground with it= s claws, had it dig an evil pit. The hero Ninurta fell into it with the turtle. The hero did not know how to get out from ……. The turtle kept on gnawing his feet with its claws.

The great lord Enki said to him: "From ……, you who set your mind to kill me, …… who makes big claims -- I cut down, I raise up. You who set your sights on me l= ike this, what has your position seized for you, how ……? Where has your strength fled? Where is your heroism? In the great mountains you caused destruction,= but how will you get out now?"

Ninmena learned of this situation. She ripped the clothes on her body and she ……. "You my plant-eater Enki, who shall I s= end to you? Men will shake their heads in fear ……. Who shall I send to you? That n= ame is not Enki. That name is Ugugu-that-does-not-pou. You who are death which has no mercy, who shall = I send to you?"
